Jewelry box upcycled

I am on a roll with finding little boxes, even old chocolate boxes that I find at thrift stores and transform and clean into jewelry boxes.

What girl doesn't need a few more places to put all those earrings?

BEFORE:

This box had a big cutsey butterfly on it that I painted over with red.
It was under a dollar at the thrift store!

Then I started my collaging with pictures out of a french book that I have been cutting up that was $4


I added ribbon in purple to outside of the box to give it a little pop.
Some of the accents I used were a fleur de lis punch, a rip out from a French text, a stamp that looked like it is from a vintage post office stamp and some puff paint.


Here is close up of the vintage French movie poster I used to the top.




At the bottom of the jewelry box I added another effect of using a purple ink pad and lightly rubbing it all along the edge of the box.

I hope you like the project. I have been priming more jewelry boxes that are on it's way that I can't wait to share. If you like one don't hesitate to message me for how you can order!
Merci!
